      Hey,

      What's his range for calling your 3bet? How does it interact with the board? What's your equity and folding equity?

      Then we can discuss best lines for postflop. :)

      If that is indeed his range it's hard to cbet there. You need him to have smaller connectors and pairs to have a profitable cbet. Otherwise, he just has a hand too often and never folds.

      If you can cbet the flop, the turn is definitely very bad because he clearly doesn't have air and the card helps anything he called flop with.

      How can we know his calling 3bet range, if he is unknown to us?
      Is this good spot to 3 barrel here since we have equity and maybe villian folds KQ, AJ, KJ, AT, TT, A9 ...

      You can most definitely make some smart assumptions based on what an unkown usually does at your stakes. You face uknowns all the time, there has to be a pattern for what most of them do because that's why they are about the same level. Usually fishy unknowns like all pairs and 50% of suited cards while unknown regs like some medium pairs and non-premium broadways. You have your range for both now.

      @barreling: you have to comnpare the folds of some air and Jx to how often he has better. Plus, KQ never folds here, just forget about making people fold the top pair as unkowns at micros. Think about it when the average uknown is a decent hand reader.
